Implications for the voter centered design of e-voting portals are discussed. ... information foraging behavior. ...doi:10.1109/hicss.2010.57 dblp:conf/hicss/VatrapuR10 fatcat:qi6uvvqyvffbtjzqglha5dahuu
However, the physiological mechanisms by which direct foraging assessments and public information are integrated to affect behaviour remain largely unknown. ... Red crossbills are irruptive migrants that are considered sensitive to changes in food availability and use public information in decision making. ...

The Personal Learning Environment (PLE) driven approach to learning suggests a shift in emphasis from a teacher driven knowledge-push to a learner driven knowledge-pull learning model. ... Abstract The Personal Learning Environment (PLE) driven approach to learning suggests a shift in emphasis from a teacher driven knowledge-push to a learner driven knowledge-pull learning model. ... The output of this step is a set of vote vectors V in which v(e) = (v1(e) , v2(e), …, vm(e)) represents the votes on the learning entity e; vj(e) is the number of votes on e retrieved from service sj. ...doi:10.1108/17440081011034466 fatcat:azovfjvk7fhmfbvyb5tykwe6ui
It emerges that group decisions in animals pose many similar questions to those in humans. ... The purpose of the present issue is to integrate and combine approaches in the social and natural sciences in an area in which theoretical challenges and research questions are often similar, and to introduce ... Formally, S is evolutionarily stable if, for any T, either E(S, S)O E(T, S) or [E(S, S)ZE(T, S) and E(S, T)OE(T, T)], where E(A, B) is the pay-off of playing a strategy A against a strategy B. ...doi:10.1098/rstb.2008.0276 pmid:19073475 pmcid:PMC2689721 fatcat:zzvqnohrybh7hccbliyje2z5c4

The challenge is how to use the information that does exist effectively. The method we have used is closest to vote-counting. ... However, instead of the repeated trials nature of vote-counting proving a problem (Hedges & Olkin 1980; Gurevitch & Hedges 1999), we have explicitly used it to inform us about the likelihood of species ...
In particular, we analyze our system's capacity to correctly detect robots with faults, false positive rates, performance in a foraging task in which each robot exhibits a composite behavior, and performance ... In this paper, we present a generic fault-detection system for robot swarms. ... The final feature vector for each observed robot is then updated by a simple majority vote on the most recently received feature-vector information in the past W l s, counting each voter only once. ...doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0182058 pmid:28806756 pmcid:PMC5555700 fatcat:hojwn4jgcvhyhmeabwf7o3zk2u

Dewey's model is superior to the others in its ability to model the epistemic functions of three constitutive features of democracy: the epistemic diversity of participants, the interaction of voting with ... It views democracy as an institution for pooling widely distributed information about problems and policies of public interest by engaging the participation of epistemically diverse knowers. ... Socially dispersed information can be transmitted in three forms: talk, votes, and market prices. Markets respond primarily to price information; democratic states primarily to talk and votes. ...doi:10.3366/epi.2006.3.1-2.8 fatcat:ukaljlnsz5bqlnaksp34ac5kgi

A collateral result demonstrated that, compared to a dictatorial decision scheme guided by the best member in a group, the majority/plurality decision rules can pool information effectively and produce ... A behavioral experiment demonstrated that cooperators and free riders coexist in a stable manner in groups performing with the nonlinear production function. ... In both cases, individuals (computer agents in the simulation study and human participants in the behavioral experiment) were required to decide whether to cooperate or defect before voting on a foraging ...doi:10.1037/a0020699 pmid:20822292 fatcat:qskpvggatbdxnocxsgroojxqw4
